Thyristor based short circuit current injection in isolated grids
ForfatterHoff, Bjarte; Sharma, Pawan; Østrem, Trond
This paper proposes a thyristor based short circuit current injector for providing short circuit current in isolated and weak grids, where sufficient fault current to trigger circuit breakers may not be available. This will allow the use of conventional miniature circuit breakers, which requires high fault current for instantaneous tripping. The method has been validated through experiments.
